The primary purpose of this Pup is to act as preconfigured self-contained DLNA server. No special setup is required. To that end it contains a third 7.9GB f2fs partition (The media “pool”) with 7.1GB of free space. Three test videos are already present on that partition.
The target device is a 32GB USB2 or USB3 stick but see the first item in the FAQ.
Thanks go to BarryK for his Quirky Werewolf64 7.3.2 (Released 15th Nov) upon which this Pup is based. The kernel is 4.2.6. Thanks also go to forum members radky & SFR for creating the majority of additional pets included. Nothing has been removed from the base Pup in an attempt to retain compatibility with any future service packs that Barry may issue. The main additions include:
DLNA: (ReadyMedia a.k.a. minidlna)
The free space on the third partition may be insufficient for some people’s needs. This implementation however has the ability to switch over to another media repository such as an external USB drive, USB stick or indeed any internal drive or partition. There is no problem with ever changing USB device letters as it uses the UUID of the partition or device. The only thing required is a simple edit to a single file followed by a reboot. The file in question is /root/Startup/mountpool.sh. It contains instructions plus an example.
Latest versions of Google Chrome & Thunderbird: Both are preconfigured and there is a utility to update Chrome. (See FAQ)
Wolf Alert: Provides a visual & spoken alert at boot time or upon restarting X when new pets or service packs become available.
List of additional Pets included:
Installation: Using Windows: (This is the recommended method when available)
7-Zip should be used to decompress the image. It will decompress to 14.91GB so please ensure that you have at least that much free space available on an NTFS volume. Use win32diskimager to place the image on the stick. A detailed win32diskimager guide plus a link to it is to be found here: www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=765457#765457
If the stick is seen as sdb1 you would target the device sdb. No special preparation of the stick is required. Anything on it will be wiped.
The idea is that having gone through the usual quicksetup & network settings DLNA should work OOTB. Just reboot then head off to the TV. If the DLNA does not work with your TV you will need to look elsewhere.
